I was going to submit an application to your site for all trucking companies but there is a problem with your security. I don't remember all the specifics but there is a yellow triangle icon in the address bar and when I click on it it provides explanation.

I'm not comfortable providing my personal info and especially my ssn to your site, too much identity theft going on.

Let me know if you resolve this, MC.


Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

Hey Michael. That may not have been our website. We have our own application here but we also host job listings to external websites.

I just checked myself and I'm getting the green lock. Check this page and see what it gives you:

Truck Driving Jobs In Zip 14221

If you do get a yellow triangle, let me know what it says.

Normally the yellow triangle means that something on the page, usually an image or an external file, is being loaded over http: instead of https: ....normally it's not an issue but I don't blame you at all for being cautious. I'm the same way.

Take a look at that link above and see what you get. Thanks.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Thanks man!

Yeah, I'm thinking that may have been an application on an external site.
